Do Not Fear Change

do-not-fear-change-400x400

I Am the Risen One who shines upon you always. You worship a living Deity, not some idolatrous, man-made image. Your relationship with Me is meant to be vibrant and challenging, as I invade more and more areas of your life.

Do not fear change, for I am making you a new creation, with old things passing away and new things continually on the horizon.

When you cling to old ways and sameness, you resist My work within you. I want you to embrace all that I am doing in your life, finding your security in Me alone.

It is easy to make an idol of routine, finding security within the boundaries you build around your life. Although each day contains twenty-four hours, every single one presents a unique set of circumstances. Don’t try to force-fit today into yesterday’s mold. Instead, ask Me to open your eyes so you can find all I have prepared for you in this precious day of Life.

The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. — Matthew 28:5
